Bay View editors confront Tetra Tech’s intimidation tactics and environmental racism in Bayview Hunters Point

Bayview, San Francisco – Bay View Assistant Editor Malik Washington discusses two threatening letters sent to to the Bay View newspaper October and November 2020 from Tetra Tech, the remediation company contracted to clean up the toxic Hunters Point Shipyard charged in 2019 with fabricating false soil sample results from several parcels in the highly contaminated area. The now notorious scandal at the Shipyard Superfund site involves developer Lennar, the Navy and many hundreds of elected officials in California and the City of San Francisco and administrators at the SF Department of Public Health. For decades, community activists, Shipyard workers, Dr. Ahimsa Porter Sumchai, Marie Harrison, Espanola Jackson, Elouise Westbrook, M. Reza Shirazi and countless other community based and academic investigators have used the Bay View to reveal the truth behind corporate, government and city fraud at the Shipyard in the historically Black Bayview Hunters Point neighborhood.
